Sony’s PlayStation 3 is set to arrive next week on November 17th. With just 400,000 units available at launch in the USA, and an unknown number of game consoles arriving the rest of year. The total is expected to be below 1 million units in 2006, as a result many publishers have decided to delay their games so more time can be spent polishing them, since there won’t be many customers until 2007 anyway. We’re sure there are many other reason too, but remember you’ll have other ways to entertain yourself with the PS3 aside from it’s multimedia capabilities. From day one you’ll be able to download small games (plus their demos to give them a try first) and while Sony hasn’t announced any specifics like price and release dates yet, count on Sony’s PS3 download games like flOw & Blast Factor to be there. Anyway, time to move on to the main course, here are the PS3 game lists.
